About this episode

In this video, Shaykh Yasir continues the difficulties that were arising in the quest for Islam and how our Prophet ﷺ sought to make adjustments but never once thought of abandoning our Deen.

For the spread of Islam to the farthest extent possible, the Prophet ﷺ realised he needed a place to congregate with his supporters. So, how did he choose an appropriate place for this purpose and what was the wisdom behind the choice? Shaykh Yasir elaborates.

The next major incident was the first immigration to Abyssinia which is in Africa. When these tactics of torture and humiliation continued at the hands of the pagans, the Prophet ﷺ suggested to the Sahaba of migrating to Abyssinia. One has to imagine how difficult and utterly demotivating was the situation in Mecca for them to prefer going to Abyssinia over staying in Mecca. What were the wisdoms of choosing Abyssinia as the safety net? Listen intently and be mesmerised by the sheer intellect of our Prophet ﷺ.

When the Prophet ﷺ gave this command, 15 people migrated in total, 11 men and 4 women. Who were they and what criteria was to be met for the selected people to migrate?
